Next on the schedule for the Marion County Aquaknights is the regional tournament.
On Feb. 10-11, Marion County travels to Russell County for the regional tournament. In arguably the most important meets of the season, Aquaknights Head Coach Katie Johnson says her team will come out ready to swim. She also says she has seen improvements out of several of her swimmers.
The district tournament is only two weeks away, and only five games remaining in the season, the Marion County Lady Knights seek a clean sweep of their remaining games when they do battle with the Boyle County Lady Rebels at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 9. The Lady Rebels (11-13) recently took on the Casey County Lady Rebels at home Feb. 7 before making the trip to the Roby Dome.
Lady Knights Head Coach Kenny Mills expects Boyle County to play better than their record would indicate.
If Montrelle Irvin is right, those on hand can expect a good fight when the Frankfort Panthers come to Marion County High School at 4:30 p.m., Saturday to play the Marion County Knights.
"They're an up and down team," he said. "It's going to be a really tough game."

Haeli Howard scored 24 points to lead the Lady Knights to a 58-38 win over the Taylor County Lady Cardinals Friday evening.
"We started off slow," Lady Knights Head Coach Kenny Mills said. "We weren't rebounding and were settling for the outside shot. We picked it up in the third quarter and started playing better defense and getting to the basket."
